The hedge fund manager who took home biggest payday last year has several large bets for 2020, including tech giants and railroad companies.

Chris Hohn, the founder and manager of TCI Fund Management, was the highest paid hedge fund leader last year. Hohn made more than $1.8 billion last year as his fund gained 41%, according to Bloomberg.

Hohn founded TCI in 2003, and the activist investor typically holds a concentrated portfolio without major turnover. TCI reported that it had 17 stock positions at the end of the fourth quarter.
